He collaborated with J. H. Morris to produce The Carpenter's Companion … for… Chinese Railing and Gates (1765), and also designed in the Gothick style, including a garden-pavilion illustrated in Krafft's Plans des plus beaux jardins pittoresques (1809). His architectural works are not numerous, but include Boodle's Club, St. James's Street, London (1775–6), which is influenced by the work of Robert Adam.
